Ready to deepen and share your love for yoga? Our celebrated 200-Hour Teacher Training is an incredibly rich and intensive program that fully brings to life the depth and joy of yoga as a creative and transformative process and as a divine path to awakening and liberation. Through intense daily practice, 1:1 mentorship, self inquiry, group participation/discussion and community service, you will uncover your unique voice and be empowered to teach, practice and live your Dharma (calling) in an authentic way.

Director Jasmine Tarkeshi along with Lotus’s Creative Teaching Team will be your guides for the amazing journey that is Laughing Lotus Yoga School in our 3 week intensive format! Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Meditation, philosophy and teaching skills are taught by our Senior Teachers, infused with creativity and the unique approach to sharing the yoga practice that is the Center’s signature Lotus Flow teaching style. Our philosophy focuses on Ayurveda, Yoga’s Sister science of healing, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the “road map” to liberation and the Bhagavad Gita, the path of self transcendent action and devotion through which we experience the meaning of yoga and how this rich philosophy relates to and transforms our daily lives and how we can live our lives as service to others.

“Yoga meets You in the present place, time and state of mind. Laughing Lotus is a sacred space exemplifying this yogic quality by beautifully connecting the ancient Raja Yoga practice to the here and now. After Yoga School at LL, I found enrichment in my personal asana practice, spiritual navigation, and creative expression. This immersion is an invaluable opportunity to find intimacy with the present moment and foster citta vrtti nirodah in the midst of the 21st century city hustle and bustle. “ ~ Steven Shepard

Jasmine and the other teachers do an excellent job distilling the great Yogic practices into the 200-hour training, which comes and goes seemingly as quickly as the breath. On top of learning a brilliant way to teach Yoga through Lotus Flow, the YTT helped me find and add fuel to my divine spark. That spark has grown into a radiant and powerful sun, waiting to shine light on truth for others to grow and developed based on the knowledge accrued and introduced in this training. I have learned and will continue to develop a lifelong practice, skills, and knowledge and for that, I am forever grateful.” ~ Kris Evans

Yoga School gave me so much more than I ever thought possible. I was introduced to teachers who became my friends, and friends who became my teachers. Everyone became family. A circle of support who help you understand YOU better.

Yoga itself is so much more than the physical and now I have so much more direction in how to channel the teachings of Yoga into all aspects of life. Now I understand what it means when people say to continue practicing yoga off the mat! ~ Yurina Stinner

“For five years, I was searching for the right yoga studio to do my teacher training program, and when I found the lotus in 2014 I knew I had finally found it. Walking into the inviting colorful doors, I knew I was home. Jasmine and her team of inspiring, talented, and heart centered teachers have created a teacher training program that is nothing short of transformational. While diving deeply into the ancient texts of yoga and deconstructing each chakra and posture, we were also encouraged to search inside of ourselves and our own truth- and with this I found myself diving even deeper into my connection to spirit. ~ Liz Gilbert
